The comeback of the brand seems really promising with the launch. This car is moulded out of aluminium metal which helps it very stable even at an extremely high speed. The foldable roof makes the ride more exciting by offering the riders the scope to enjoy the unobstructed view of the surrounding.

The ravishing structure of the car is a delight for the shutterbugs. However the rear with narrow tail lamps is more eye appealing. The exterior of the car is awe-inspiring and reminds you of the E-Type model. The transformation from E-Type to F-Type is simply dramatic.
